A charming 19th century savoyard farmhouse.

Nestled in the picturesque village of Montriond, just a stone's throw away from the bustling town of Morzine, this traditional Savoyard detached farmhouse that can sleep up to 15 people is a testament to Alpine charm. With 7 en-suite bedrooms, spacious living area, traditional kitchen, dedicated bar room complete with a football table and a soothing hot tub, this property effortlessly combines the warmth of a classic Alpine home with modern comforts.

Located in the peaceful hamlet of Le Lavanchy, just a 1.2km walk to the village centre and within walking distance to Lac Montriond, The Retreat oozes all of the character, charm and features one would expect of a traditional Savoyard farmhouse dating back to 1887. 

Spread out across three levels, offering spaciousness and privacy for all, each floor has its own unique character, making this property an ideal place for multi-generational family getaways or group vacations.

Boasting seven en-suite bedrooms, each room is a haven of relaxation. Four of the bedrooms can be laid out with a king size bed or two singles and the remaining three bedrooms offer a king size bed per room. One of the rooms also has a sofa bed in it where one adult could sleep comfortably.

The heart of this chalet truly is the middle floor where guests will find a generously proportioned lounge dining room. Wooden beams and a central stone and glass fireplace create a warm and inviting atmosphere and the perfect place to share stories of the day's skiing or hiking exploits.

The farmhouse's kitchen is a culinary delight, exuding rustic charm. Fully equipped with modern appliances, it's perfect for whipping up hearty mountain meals, with ample space for creating feasts to be savored around the large dining table. There is also an adjacent utility room with additional fridge freezer, a washer dryer and extensive storage space and worktops.


For a touch of après-ski fun, the dedicated bar room is the ultimate spot to relax in. Challenge your friends to a game of table football, create a cocktail or two or simply enjoy a drink, this space is a great place to spend the evening. Furthermore, there is a seperate quirky children's chill out area with comfy floor cushion sofas and a TV giving them their own place to wind down. Relax and rejuvenate in the outdoor hot tub. The perfect way to soothe tired muscles as you soak under the starry Alpine skies. To the front of the property there is ample off road, private parking for multiple vehicles and to the rear a large lawned area runs away from the property.

Within walking distance of the chalet you will find a local store offering a well-rounded selection of everyday essentials, along with the fresh, daily-baked bread & croissants and a handful of bars and restaurants. Morzine is just a short drive away (4km) offering a wider array of shops, restaurants and entertainment options. The free ski shuttle bus has a stop just 250m from the chalet where regular buses can ferry you up to one of the main ski lifts in the area - Prodains Telecabine. 

Lac Montriond is also within walking distance where in the winter, this lake is a stunning frozen jewel nestled amidst the mountains and then when summer arrives, it transforms into the ideal spot for swimming, paddle boarding and sunbathing. A handful of restaurants can also be found here.  Whether you're a winter sports enthusiast or a summer hiker, this location really is a year-round paradise.
